Mr. FitzGerald has much work

Mr. FitzGerald has much work to do to protect the community against the systemic corruption by some prior and current county officials. It is a sad thing when judges like Kathlenn Ann Keough, Lynn McLauglin Murray, Tim McGinty and John O'Donnell can fix cases so freely with Chief Judge Nancy Fuerst perpetuating it. It's a sad thing where these people send innocent people to jail and seem to have no thoughts about it. They should join former judges McCafferty and Terry and be prosecuted to the fullest. And the PD should stop promoting McLaughlin Murray and McGinty--Kathy Wray Coleman

Kill the Land Bank

sooner the better.

Read here and here for more details on why the Land Bank should be shut down.

Then decide if you, as a taxpayer, want to pay the additional hundreds of thousands of dollars annually that  land bank officials are now requesting:

August 27, 2011      CLEVELAND, Ohio -- The Cuyahoga County Land Bank wants a new funding formula that would guarantee the agency $7 million a year and cost taxpayers hundreds of thousands of dollars annually.

 

The same officials that targeted minorities in East Cleveland, Cleveland's East Side, and eastern suburbs via the delinquent property tax foreclosure scam with Plymouth Park Tax Services are the same officials that are now making development plans for East Cleveland since they "cleansed" the area for their developer buddies.  East Cleveland was hit hard with the Plymouth Park Tax Services scam.

The LandBank Reasoning....only creates outrageously overpaid job

Explain to the public at large why the Landbank should get $7 million a year to survive in the world of rehabbing houses and why this money is predominantly for the ADMINISTRATION COSTS?????

 

IF A REHAB CONTRACTOR CANNOT FIGURE OUT HOW TO BUY, REHAB, AND RESALE A PROPERTY WITHOUT PUBLIC FUNDING; THEN HE ULTIMATELY CANNOT BE SUCCESSFUL...BUT WE ARE SUPPOSED TO USE OUR TAX DOLLARS TO FUND A NOT FOR PROFIT THAT IS SIMPLY OVERPAYING ADMINISTRATORS AND HAND PICKED CONTRACTORS TO CONDUCT DEVELOPMENT???

 

GET REAL CUYAHOGA COUNTY...THIS PERPETUATES THE DEMISE OF THE REAL ESTATE INVESTMENT COMMUNITY FOR PROFIT IN THIS COMMUNITY....NOTHING THAT THE LAND BANK IS DOING INSPIRES INVESTORS FROM FOR PROFIT ENTITIES TO PARTICIPATE IN OUR REGION UNLESS IT IS ALL ABOUT PAY TO PLAY POLITICS...

 

THE LAND BANK ONLY SERVES TO PROVIDE EMPLOYMENT TO "HAS BEEN" POLITICIANS ONCE THEY NO LONGER HAVE A POLITICAL SEAT TO HOLD LOCALLY. IT'S A POLITICALLY STEERED NOT FOR PROFIT AGENCY THAT VIOLATES THE PUBLIC AT LARGE AND THE BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT SECTOR OF OUR COMMUNITY.

36 YEARS OF CDBG FUNDING HAS DESTROYED CLEVELAND

HEY CLEVELAND....

WE HAVE BEEN RECEIVING CDBG FUNDS FOR 36 YEARS....DO YOU SEE THE PROGRESS? 

LOOK AT THE GUT WRENCHING RESULTS OF THE DEVELOPMENT PRACTICES OF HUD IN OUR COMMUNITY OVER 36 YEARS AND HOW THE NEIGHBORHOODS HAVE DEMISED OVER THAT PERIOD.

Philathropy and CDBG funds key to driving Cleveland to ruin

The Cleveland Foundation, The Gund Foundation and the CDC's haven't finished the job yet.   

They are getting close to the finish.  Close to the bottom.  

Isn't it ironic?   The do gooders have destroyed Cleveland. 

This isn't a thesis.   This is fact.

Angelward14 has hit the nail on the head.

The reason is that the CDCs and the Foundations always cut their own in on the funding - and this totally skews all reality and all market forces.

Thus all the funds the CDCs and the Foundations spend actually promote not the public good, but are directed for the selfish (both intellectually and financially) benefit of the players.

Two large scale examples are:  1. the Cleveland Foundations seed funding the wind turbine study with Bill Mason at the helm - which  was a total waste of public  money and community energy,  (worse than a waste of public money, it was a tragic diversion at a critical point in time from what should have been done with wind turbines in NEO) and 2. the funding by the Cleveland Foundation of the "study" which influenced the Cleveland Metropolitan School District to close schools and shed teachers during the Sanders/Raskin era.  

But this is nothing...for forty or more years Cleveland has been sinking, going down the toilet, getting wasted...while the Foundations and the CDC's continue to practice self dillusion ("We've got it all together") and the buddy $y$tem.  

 

 

Wow....before the investigation...it was 100% to close it down..

Now we have some players involved and they are really working hard to skew the vote and protect their interests.....the entire dynamic of the poll has changed overnight....

THE OTHER DAY IT WAS 15 VOTES AT 100% TO CLOSE THE LAND BANK...NOW YOU ALL ARE TRYING TO PROTECT YOUR "interests!" IT'S LAUGHABLE! 

HEY CUYAHOGA COUNTY LAND BANK PLAYERS: YOU ARE CORRUPT AND NEED TO GO!

YOU ARE A WASTE OF OUR TAX DOLLARS, YOU USE ABUSIVE PRACTICES, AND YOU VIOLATE THE PUBLIC AT LARGE WITH EXCESSIVE PAYCHECKS AND POLITICAL STEERING OF FEDERAL FUNDS! 

THE CITIZENS ARE SICK OF THIS KIND OF GARBAGE...AND ALL THE SKEWING IN THE WORLD WON'T PROTECT YOU FROM YOURSELVES!

GREEDY, LANDBANK PLAYERS....WHAT'S UP? YOU FIGURED OUT HOW TO PORTFOLIO COUNTLESS DEALS WITHOUT HAVING TO PAY FOR THE PROPERTY TAXES AS A NOT FOR PROFIT AND THEN YOU SIT HIGH ATOP YOUR JOBS AS THOUGH YOU DID SOMETHING SPECIAL FOR OUR COMMUNITY??? YES, YOU REFUSED TO HELP THE AVERAGE FOLKS WHILE SUCKING UP THEIR PROPERTIES SO THAT YOU COULD GET GRANTS TO FIX IT UP OR TEAR IT DOWN WITHOUT REGARD FOR THE RESIDENTS OF OUR COUNTY....NICE JOB, GUYS! 

HOW MANY FAMILIES BECAME HOMELESS SO YOU CAN SIT IN YOUR POSITIONS AND PAT YOURSELVES ON THE BACK????
